It's 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.Evie worries he'll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfurl in the city that never sleeps. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened....

5 Reasons to read The Diviners

  • The narrator did a fantastic job with this story.  You were never confused which character was speaking.
  • The time period. I loved reading a book set in the 20’s.
  • The characters. Some of them are lovable, likeable, and others you are iffy about.
  • The amazing words. Seriously, I didn’t realize how many fun words were used then. I’m going to start using them in my vocabulary.
  • Creepy factor.  The person behind all the craziness is creepy as hell.  I was constantly looking over my shoulder to make sure nobody was behind me.
